The gun spinning is impressive. What's MORE impressive is anyone standing there letting him do that without kneeing him hard in the spuds.

Now I kind of find this news story kind of amusing..

 

 Tennessee Woman Outraged by Ghetto Booty Diagnosis

 

A Tennessee woman who complained to her doctor about her lower back pain received a diagnosis that won't be found in any medical books.

"He said 'I know what the problem is. It's ghetto booty,'" Terry Ragland told CBS affiliate WREG in Memphis, Tenn.

Ragland is complaining to the Tennessee Department of Health about Dr. Timothy Sweo for what she calls an "inappropriate" and "sexist" comment.

She said she couldn't believe that the doctor would give her that diagnosis. She even asked him again for clarification.

"I said "ghetto what?' (He said,) 'ghetto booty,'" she recalled.

 

She then told an office manager what happened, and the staffer apologized for the comment. Sweo apologized to Ragland in a letter a few weeks later, explaining he was "trying to take a technical conversation regarding your lower back and make it less technical."

"It says to me he doubts what kind of intellect I have, how intelligent I am to be able to understand what he conveys to me in a medical term," she commented.

 

Sweo told WREG that Ragland had lumbar lordosis, which an inward curvature of the spine. Excessive curvature can lead to moderate to severe back pain.

"What I was trying to explain to that patient is that she has lumbar lordosis, which is a fancy name for the curve of the lower spine that makes the buttocks protrude more," he said. "In trying to explain that I said that she had ghetto booty and she didn't like that apparently. That was my attempt to explain why she had the back problem. It wasn't the whole problem but it was part of it and she got upset about it. You cannot cure lumbar lordosis."

He added that the term "ghetto booty" is not targeted toward a certain race or ethnicity, and he did not mean to offend anyone. Sweo admitted though that the term was "probably inappropriate," and he would not be using it anymore.

 

Sweo has never faced disciplinary action in Tennessee, but if the state finds that Ragland's claim is substantiated, it will be brought to the Board of Medical Examiners. They will decide if it warrants further disciplinary action.

 

"It's not endearing. It's not loving. It's not a compliment. It's wrong in every aspect and it's very demeaning," Ragland said.

Meh, you can make any language sound incredibly dumb if you totally exaggerate certain syllables and letters in words while speaking very loudly like an angry constipated coke addict.

I speak French and Cantonese Chinese (by the time my parents realised they should have been teaching me Mandarin instead, it was too late) and I actually find German quite pleasant to listen to so long as it isn't being spoken by some failed artist with a toothbrush mustache. Rather unfortunate when one speaks of how the German language sounds many immediately think of Rammstein and Triumph of the Will

If you really want to have fun at danes, you should explain how you count things. *Shudder*

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken
